Viral video sparks online buzz as Audi private car shakes vigorously on Ocean Terminal rooftop carpark


10th April 2024 – (Hong Kong) A video footage, taken at the rooftop of Ocean Terminal Car Park at Tsim Sha Tsui Harbour City, showcases a black Audi car vigorously shaking in its place, prompting the astonished filmer to exclaim, “Carquake!” The video has incited a lively discussion among internet users, with some humorously commenting on the rhythmic intensity of the shaking, the exorbitant cost of renting in the city, and even contemplating how to explain the phenomenon to their partners at home. On the other hand, there are those who question the authenticity of the “carquake,” pointing out that the video fails to capture any visible occupants due to the obscured windows.

Further research reveals that this particular video snippet actually dates back to 2019 and has recently resurfaced due to renewed online interest and widespread sharing among netizens.

Netizens, upon viewing the video, expressed their astonishment and amusement, describing the occurrence as “remarkably wild.” Some remarked on the rhythmic nature and forcefulness of the shaking, while others made lighthearted comments about the high cost of housing in the area. Suggestions ranged from cheering on the car’s occupants to tapping on the window and inquiring about their well-being, and even half-jokingly suggesting contacting the authorities for assistance. A few individuals humorously referred to the shaking as a “6.9 magnitude carquake” and pondered how they would explain the incident to their partners upon returning home. Others suggested that the car might be undergoing a suspension test, while some jokingly advised seeking out a smaller spot for more efficient shaking and even hinted at the potential for voyeuristic views through the front windshield.

As doubts arose regarding the legitimacy of the “carquake,” questions were raised about whether there were occupants inside the vehicle, given that the obscured windows made it impossible to ascertain.

Upon investigation, it was discovered that the video footage initially circulated in 2019, with the uploader of the video questioning, “Is the rooftop of Ocean Terminal experiencing an earthquake?” It has resurfaced recently, gaining renewed attention among netizens after being reposted and shared extensively.
